  1. I was about to rattle off a post like everybody else listing all the classics they could cram on this collection. Then I remembered that this is Sega, sobered up a bit and repeatedly punched myself in the balls instead.

    Crazy Taxi

    Rez

    Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram

    Soul Calibur (Edit! Hang on, this one is Namco fffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuu)

    Sega Bass Fishing

    Space Channel 5 Part 2

    Sonic Adventure

    ...is what the collection will be, at best, won't it? :(

    Prove me wrong, Sega, my testicles are sore.

    Bloody hell, I was a bit over-optimistic there.

    Shine on Sega you crazy, useless, diamond. PLEASE REPACKAGE DR.ROBOTNIK'S MEAN BEAN MACHINE AND SONIC & KNUCKLES AND GOLDEN AXE AND ALTERED BEAST AND FUCKING ESWAT FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, TOO, THANKS.

  2. Picked this up before Christmas but only just got round to playing it yesterday. I’m surprised that it isn’t grabbing me at all, especially as I enjoyed what I played at the Eurogamer Expo. I don’t play online multiplayer (a racing game without split screen when we all have screens the size of family cars now and consoles powerful enough to do it justice, what‘s up with that Seinfeld?) and the Autolog stuff I couldn’t care less about.

    It left a bad first impression last night, I admit, with that advert and the *swoosh, clunk, swoosh, clunk* tutorial and unlockable reward bits that you cannot skip.

    I’m prepared to give it a chance, though, before I make my money back at CEX.

  4. What a odd choice of style/design for an SSX game; it looks like some focus group tested nightmare.

    Where's the outrageous character(s) and exploding neon confetti?

  5. Agreed. I'm loving it too (well, the Winning Eleven equivalent). The default game speed felt a bit sluggish, though, so I bumped it up to +1. It feels perfect now.

    Post patch the default speed is even faster, in fact, it looks ridiculous at times. I've have to bump it down to -1 because it was just too fast and hectic.

    The biggest improvement is the closing down of wing play by the AI. The jog bug is now gone from what I played of the two games last night and the CPU is very aggresssive in tackling and blocking the cross, so it now really pays to get early first-time balls in to the box. The player switching I'm still not sure of , I *think* it has improved some but I need more games with it to see if those 'for fuck's SAKE' moments of conceding a goal because you lost control of a player at the vital time still happen. The game did feel more responsive, though, tighter with less button lag. All in all, it's still a scatty game, it will be cruising along just fine and then have two minutes of absolute out-of-control madness where nothing works or makes sense.

    I still like it.

    The penalties can suck a dick though.

  6. Another:

    I'm really tempted to grab all of these and put them in a subsection of my site for the sake of preservation - maybe with answers that match the background colour so more people can play. It's a shame that some image links are already borked though...

    Oooh, Chime?

  7. Can you only do it once? Ive spent about 4000 points so far this month so if I can get 1600 back spending 4800 then I might get another game today

    Only once.

    The Details

    Purchase at least 2400 Microsoft Points worth of Xbox LIVE Arcade and/or Game add-on content between 12:01 A.M. Eastern Standard Time (EST) October 1 and 11:59 pm EST October 31, 2010 and receive 800 Microsoft Points added automatically to your membership. Limit one gift per person. The free points will be deposited automatically into your Xbox LIVE account after the end of the promotion period. Please allow four weeks for delivery, on or around November 30, 2010.

  8. Is this 800 points deal only till today? I was hoping Costume Quest would get a Halloween deal but doesn't look like it now and I want to get it.

    fuck it, bought it anyway.

    A reminder to all that today is the last day of the 'spend 2400 points and get 800 back' promotion - http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Press/archive/2010/0930-thankyougift

    I'm so picking up Crazy Taxi (minus Bad Religion and Offspring *sigh*) with those free points next month.

  9. Pinball FX2 is awesome and great example of how to do a sequel properly. As a 'free' upgrade to the first game it's a steal already but the pack of new tables are a massive improvement compared to the previous ones. That Pasha table is high score crack mixed with crystal meth.

  10. I remember playing Sega Bass Fishing with mates whilst drunk some ten years ago. It was so funny that the lager came out of my nose.

    "Enjwoy your fwishing"

    "Chooooose your bait"

    "Select a casting point"

    *waggle*

    "Bite it..."

    "Fish!!" *Terrible guitar music*

    "LOWER THE ROD!"

    "LOWER THE ROD!"

    "LOWER THE ROD!"

    "Be careful!"

    "Nooooooo"

    "Small one..."

  11. Was listening to this at work and thought it was very average. Only By The Night , which I liked, was sometimes right at the tipping point of turning into that commercial MOR sound. The new album plays it too safe and lacks dynamism, energy and bite, almost like their hearts weren't really into it. Too many similar sounding songs that are hard to distinguish from one another makes it a bland listen. Really liked the first song, though.

  12. That's 40m sales. How many are still working and 'installed'. And how many have RROD'd and are sitting in a landfill just outside Frankfurt.

    Well, obviously. It is completely impossible to calculate precisely how many of anything that has been sold is still actively used or functioning, unless it’s a device or product that must be hooked up online to work and can be tracked somehow. Fuzzy logic and dodgy maths is the only way to do it but a sales figure at least gives you a starting point of reference, even it is all downhill from there.

    I agree with the comments so far of about 5% market penetration. The only way I can see it going up from there is if they bundle it with every 360 sold.

  13. Deca sports right.

    The games were complete shit on Wii. so why would you except them to raise their game on Kinect.

    I didn't and they haven't; it's a funny trolling video, mon.

    Like everyone else I'm more interested in the potential of the device, really. Just imagine what Treyarch or Bungie could do...

    Until we get a Call of Duty: Immobile Ops or a Halo: Cannot Walk Around This Pillar (Of Autumn) Collector's Edition, we really don't know how an FPS would work on the thing - nobody does. Not that it needs one, of course.

  14. i`m sure those 2-3 million AND microsoft are eagerly awaiting the day kinect can do it properly..

    Well, boy, is their luck in because they have to wait no longer...

    By which I mean, herp derp, herp derp, derp, derp, derp.

  15. Winning Eleven Blog have one (split into two downloads, I believe) for PS3

    http://winningelevenblog.com/blog/uk-wenb-of-released/

    It may be worth downloading and installing the official DLC that was released today before you install this option file. Patches have, in the past, reset or broken installed option files to the dismay and frustration of many. I don't know if this is still the case.

    I cannot vouch for the quality of the file because I only have a 360.

  16. I always miss it if it’s not there, even if the delivery and repetition is awful, as it adds to the atmosphere as background noise, I guess. It also serves as a delivery vehicle for most of the in-jokes with friends when playing local multiplayer.

    My favourite from PES 2010 was, “He’s slotted it away” just after a defender has hoofed it 50 yards up the pitch.
